1 Review
This book presents striking color images of couples, studies of friends, and nudes from the lens of the renowned photographer Nan Goldin. Whether disheveled, erotically entangled, contemplative or boisterous, the individuals in Nan Goldin's compelling portraits come to life. Arranged with the vibrant, haphazard energy of a scrapbook, these works have a cumulative effect that suggests the line between love and loneliness is often blurred. Couples and Loneliness brings together photographs that span Goldin's career and reveals the social drama of alienation and the strange beauty that is at the heart of her vision.

Review: Couples and Loneliness

User Review  - Adam Thorman - Goodreads

Housed in a gorgeous slipcase, this thin volume hits the right emotional note in its presentation, managing to capture the feel of the slide show version of the Ballad of Sexual Dependency. There are bigger and more comprehensive books of Nan Goldin's work, but this is my favorite. Read full review
